So I've assembled a new build and am at the point where I need to access the BIOS and then install my OS (XP). Here's the issue:
- My current monitor (VGA and HDMI) is not compatible w/ the mobo (DVI and HDMI) it seems. I currently have an HP w2207h monitor. I tried connecting the monitor and the new build via the HDMI but no luck (monitor does not detect the HDMI input and goes to sleep). There is, of course, no adapter for VGA to DVI so I am thinking that I may need a new monitor. And now here's my question:
- If I purchase a new monitor w/ DVI, will the new build recognize it "instantly" since there is no OS installed as of yet? As you can imagine, I need a screen to access BIOS and install OS, etc.
- Thoughts? And thanks for any input you can offer.
